Can you guys tell me how you usually anneal your gold wire? I usually just hit it with a propane torch and then quench it but I'm not sure its getting a full anneal. Is the quench really neccesary or even recommended? I have a heat treat oven. I've thought about just putting the whole she-bangs in there and heating to a precribed temp. I'm not sure exactly what temp that is. I know it will melt around 1800 degrees. It just seems that some of the wire I have is a little harder than the rest. I may not have requested the full soft when ordering.

Thanks,
